By the bonny milldams of Binnorie.

Binnorie, 0 Binnorie ; Whose sounds would melt a heart of stone ;
By the bonny milldams of Binnorie.
The strings he framed of her yellow hair,
Binnorie, 0 Binnorie ; 90 Whose notes made sad the listening ear;
By the bonny milldams of Binnorie.
He brought it to her father's hall,

He laid his harp upon a stone,
Binnorie, 0 Binnorie ; And straight it began to play alone ;

Binnorie, 0 Binnorie ; And yonder sits my mother, the queen;"
By the bonny milldams of Binnorie
